. the closest we've gotten to any competing cont republican tin wa pbl wt sator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm noture that it's a politicallviable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senar. fois yr'mi i apparently just not going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue today. in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern about veterans. even if he didn't say what he wa to do about tt con. mr. romney, in fact, implied that the sequester that might result in defense cuts that his running mate paul ryan voted for, he impliethat would hurt suicide prevention programs for veterans even though the v.a. would be exempt from that, so i'm not sure he even understd what it wahe was talng out. bu l hied. at least veterans got a mention from him. even if it didn't make sense in policy terms. you do know that defense and veterans are two different -- at

john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '08 and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consumed with the debate over at least one of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the campaign was consumed with both of the wars. now it's 2012 and we're 40 days

overwhelmingly bipartisanly in the senate. we're asking the house to move on it. romney could call john boehner and say schedule this bill for a vote. >> on trade and manufacturing and china specifically, i thought that this campaign would be fought on totally different ground on that subject. in his book and his previous sort of pundit ri, romney was arguing for not getting tough with china. was arguing against efforts by the previous administration and the obama administration to confront china on trade issues. now he's saying, this is a door mat. i'm the one who will be tough. >> that was romney 2.0. that's clear that's the case. one of the specific cases that romney criticized the president on was the tire dumping case, which has resulted in jobs in cooper tire and finley, ohio. mitt romney just senses an opportunity here. there's no real -- there's been no real interest in his career in standing up to china. the president is doing the right thing. i urged him to be a bit more aggressive. he needs to move more aggressive on currency. this legislation would matter. there's no question. the p

won by president obama and about a third of those were also won by john kerry. and soe think there's real opportunity. we wgog to tou people didn s in '06 when we first made this attempt. yet. it took like another few weeks before they started to see the handwriting on the wall that the momentum was with us, and that the polls, and that these individual districts were coming our way. rit nowe'rin a a erofe,e ts ahead, average in the generic. some eight, some two, average of five, that five is enough to win the house. i'd like six or seven percentage points difrence in the polling for us to take -- >> in tes of the gener baot, le a, ou moicgress? >> in individual districts. >> one of the issues that gets a lot of attention in terms of how it might affect the presidential race is the issue of voter suppression, becoming more difficult to register to vote and to vot if you have a moment, have actual somnew ws oat ofri can you hold on a moment. how that's going to affect not just the presidential race, but also the race to control the congress. we'll be back with democratic leader nan

today by mother johns. here's another page of the flyer. what can a president do about lyme disease? really now? is mitt romney running for president because of tick-borne illness? really? or is somebody else on the campaign food chain making the decisions about what to campaign on? because it is when the freelancing happens, when people start getting desperate and taking matters into their own hands, that then maybe you get a presidential campaign that's trying to be about tick-borne diseases related to deer. maybe that will work in northern virginia? and sometimes it's your buddy, the other mogul with the yacht singing your yacht parking praises. because who among us has not had this challenge. then sometimes it's exactly what you think it's going to be. >> y'all sound like y'all are senior citizens, right? yeah, we don't want -- you don't want obama. you really don't want obama, because he'll get rid of your medicare. you might as well say good-bye to it. yeah, and i don't know if you've done any research on obama or not, but he is a muslim. he is -- got a socialistic view on the
